Remember when the National Rifle Association (NRA) used to give money to Democrats? TrumpTrainNews remembers. But Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., doesn't want you to do that.
"No one’s political survival is more important than saving American lives. A good grade from the NRA is the last thing anyone should be thinking of when children are losing their lives." Pelosi tweeted
, and told a gathering of anti-gun protesters.
Back when she was Speaker Pelosi in 2010, the NRA rained $359,600 down on her Democrat majority. This year, Democrats have received $4,500 from the NRA. No wonder she says this stuff now, and not in 2010.
Since the cycle that Pelosi became Speaker in 2006, House Democrats received $870,768 from the NRA, according to OpenSecrets.org
. Better than half of that was given to the Democrats while she was speaker between 2007 and 2011. If someone believes her preaching about the NRA is heartfelt, there's over 870,000 reasons why they are wrong.
